As usual, I know I'm way off the back by posting on an episode from so long again but I'm sure there are other newer people like me who still want to comment/chat about old episodes.
I really loved this one - so many great ideas and I'd love if you guys explored these concepts in further episodes (maybe you already have!). In particular, it would be great to go more into some of the RP challenges or fun twists that could come out of playing a small character in a 'normal' sized world. For example, I'm playing a gnome in a current campaign but I don't always feel like I'm really playing as someone who's at knee-height to the rest of the party. (I've been trying to take inspiration from my toddler though It would also be fun from a DM perspective to work in more advantages/disadvantages (5e) that could come from being small.
If people are looking for Mouse-sized/themed inspiration check out Terry Pratchett's "Wee Free Men", Truckers, The Tale of Desperaux, or The Borrowers. Loads of great ideas! The Borrowers in particular use a lot of common place items in unusual ways.
As well, I've included a few pictures from an app/FB game called Mousehunt. The art is fantastic and definitely gives some great ideas for PC or NPC mouse-kin. (photos courtesy of: Mousehunt)
